We’ve been to Rincón several times, but never had the opportunity to visit this hidden treasure. Beatiful scenery and better food. Smoothies and juices are freshly made and very refreshing. Most are grown in their garden, including the pickles I had with my organic eggs,...toast and home made tomato sauce, which were amazing. Jose, our attendant was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the menu. You have not been to Rincón if you haven’t been to Carta Buena.More

Carta Buena is a farm-to-table food cart in the western coastal town of Rincón. Sitting atop an enchanting garden, guests are welcomed to roam and see where their food came from while waiting for their order to be prepared. The menu changes depending on what's...in season and locally available; vegetarian and vegan options are available. Sometimes you'll even see your food being picked fresh from the garden and added to your plate. Delight is in the details - the members of the Carta Buena team are friendly, enthusiastic, accommodating and provide timely service. Once I was taking a picture for instagram, and a staff member from the Carta Buena team noticed and brought edible flowers to top my garden bowl and add a beautiful touch to the picture. There are food options for everyone and Carta Buena is a great opportunity to try dishes with fresh ingredients you might not buy yourself because you aren't sure how to prepare them. I always leave inspired to try a new recipe and excited for the next time I am able to return. Usually they have daytime hours, but recently started doing pop-up dinners. If you have a chance to go to one, I highly recommend you take advantage of the opportunity! Supporting Carta Buena is like casting a vote for a more sustainable and healthier Puerto Rico. Make sure you bring cash, and don't be in a rush so you can enjoy the environment! Five stars, every time.More

Fantastic juice and smoothies with ingredients made straight from their garden. Light breakfast options include a surprisingly good eggs and toast. Wash it down with a sturdy local coffee and head to the water.

Me and my family have been regular customers of Carta Buena and have always loved it. However, Leon has taken it to another level with the addition of Alex and Sara. We had them cater our Father’s Day weekend at Caracol Che and the experience...and words can not describe the experience. Farm to table delivery with the experience of Alex in Michelin Star restaurants all over the US. True blessing to have them in Rincon. Kudos to Carta Buena!!More

Most of their stuff is Gluten Free. My daughter had a creamsicle smoothie every day and the Gluten Free Banana Bread. Not sure about the aspartame.
